Key Verse

“Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus” (2 Timothy 1:13).

Text — 2 Timothy 1: 8-13


Evangelical Christianity reels as shock wave after shock wave of high profile Christians declare they are abandoning their faith. Former pastors now proclaim themselves atheists. According to Anchors way Statistical Sheet on moral / spiritual condition of today’s culture, 80-90% of Christian students lose their faith by the time they graduate from college. According to the same study, 64% of born-again Christians question some aspects of the word of God. The study was conducted in USA and was published in Christianity Today, August 2010.

There are many reasons why people who previously believed the word of God and express faith in the Lord Jesus Christ eventually waver in their faith. In our text, Paul recognized the afflictions of the gospel and the shame of the testimony of Jesus as possible causes. It is possible that some of those who lost their faith never really had faith to begin with. Some had faith, but the roots were shallow. And when exposed to a crisis and trial, their faith crashed. To hold fast to the word of God, you must be fully persuaded. And you must keep that good thing which was committed unto you.


You must be fully persuaded


Will your anchor hold?

Prayer for today

Lord, I believe your word.
